Altec Lansing ADA 745 4.1 system to a Samsung Series 6

by Too_old_for_Prime_Time / February 26, 2015 11:03 PM PST

Would it be possible to hook up this 4 speaker + SW system to my Samsung. These are old(but good quality) computer
speakers. The input to this system looks like two standard
headphone jacks one green and one black. The SW is powered. The 4 speakers plug into the woofer box labeled front and rear. This was called a 4.1 system not very popular these days. The Samsung TV is a 6000 series 5 years old.

*Which* Samsung model?

Please provide entire model number (long string). Probably not going to work, but worth examining the specs.

As you surmise,

I doubt that TV has 4.1 sound format. But the first thing you need to check is...does it have connections for external speakers? If not, why waste the effort. might be able to use it for stereo only.

Most Samsungs (in fact all I've found to date)

Looks like I will be buying a "Receiver" I have been reading; prices are not bad
for older series but for the new 4K , HDMI 2 & HDCP 2.2 units I am looking at least $400+
If buying a "new receiver" today, should I dig deep to get these features? Is 4K TV going to
become mainstream in the next 5 years? My wife and I watch a lot of TV and my Samsung is
almost 5 years old.

(NT) Stereo starts to sound pretty nice about now.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
